  • How to Find Your Passion - You Can!

May 06, 2020

Once upon a time, I had no idea what I ‘truly loved’. When people talked about 'finding your passion', I used to feel left out because I did not believe I had such value in me.

Years went by, I knew something was missing. I knew I had a lot to unleash. But the problem? I couldn’t figure anything out. I started to get depressed. Still, I was by nature, a relentless person. This geared me up to begin the search for ‘who I truly am’. Yes, I worked hard. I searched. It was tough, but I found me! My hard work was worth it, because now I want to do everything… I now have so many goals to pursue. God help me. 
 
So, let me share with you some of the steps I took to find Me!

Change your mindset

If you went for an interview with a negative mindset – “I don’t think they’ll hire me” - your opinion will affect your performance, and you may not get the job. What you perceive of yourself reflects in your attitude. As a result others will see and treat you the same way.
 
The same rule applies to finding your passion. If you have a strong opinion that you are not good at anything, you’ll continue to lose opportunities. After all, how can you expect to find something that doesn’t exist? So, accept the challenge that you can do whatever you want. Surround yourself with the right people. I particularly followed people that inspired me. I learnt from their success and failure stories; how they started, and how they have been holding up. Such real-life stories inspires me, and they remind me that nothing good comes easy. It’s okay to be afraid, it’s okay to be confused, but don’t stop believing.

Go out and explore

Once you have changed your mindset, it’s time to go out and explore!
 
Now that you are confident that you can do anything, it’s time to go see what’s out there. When I was figuring out my passions, I was more outgoing. I attended seminars, signed up for trainings and met new people. Generally, I was putting passion in everything I touched! Then I fell in love with fashion. I loved beauty DIYs. I developed an interest in writing and reading. For the most part, I would spend all my time learning and talking to people about personal growth. So, I started incorporating those things into my life, and today, I am totally pleased with the results.
 
As you become open to new experiences, you will be able to figure out what make you happy and what to let go of.

Pay attention to what you spend more time doing

Self-reflection is the way to go to understand your values. This is a form of meditation wherein you focus on your thoughts; how you feel about different things. Sit down and do some digging into your life. What are the things that come to you naturally? For me, I loved web works, photo editing, and generally designing and playing with colors. These were things I loved even before the quest to finding my passion. I just didn’t pay much attention to them earlier.
 
So, I started to expand my knowledge in those areas. While these are not my focus today, I am glad I do not have to pay for such services unless I have a busy schedule. When you practice self-reflection, it’s easier to know what works and what doesn’t work for you. And, it doesn’t matter how little your effort is. If you are consistent, results are guaranteed.

Pay attention to feedback

What qualities do people admire you for? It is possible that people you interact with are aware of your passion without you realizing it. I once complimented a friend for being a great cook and she told me she gets compliments from other people as well. So, we chatted about how she could start a YouTube channel to showcase her skills to others. She absolutely loved the idea.
 
When you pay attention to feedback, you automatically have a template to work on. So, write those observations down and decide if this is the way to go.

Choose Curiosity, it helps you have fun in your journey

Elizabeth Gilbert, in a book, encourages us to pursue curiosity as a pathway to creativity. So, Instead of putting pressure on yourself - which will most likely lead to frustrations, develop a curiosity mindset. A curiosity mindset will allow you to explore and get hooked to a passion. With this mindset, you will be able to develop a commitment to keep going.
 
So, stop the procrastination and go out and explore. Living your life around everything you love is something you’ll forever cherish. If you ever experience failure in your journey, know that it is part of the process. Learn from your experience and move on.
 
How did you get to know your passion? Share your experience.
